Pablo Loayza

Pablo is the developer of the naturalbuildingtocode.com,  a Director of the Natural Living Design & Build team, and Founder of the “Natural Living School.”  He was introduced to natural building in 2010, when he studied at the Cob Cottage Company (CCC) A background in construction and finance motivates him to find a way to bring natural building into the main stream.  Pablo believes that if people knew how unhealthy their dwellings were and knew that natural building to code was a possibility, that people would choose natural building over conventional construction.
